    So there were officially produced Raketa 24hours watches with 2609 movements.

    I've always thought that Raketas of that variety uses the 2623s only, and seeing a 2609 or 2628 in them could only mean that they're (franken) monsters!

    Looks good to me. And unlike most of azbukaua's offerings, this one appears to have a legitimate (not-repainted) dial.

    Crown may not fit completely snug to the case, but that's an easy adjustment if it really bothers you.

    Nice watch 👍

    No, there were none and the model shown is not a factory franken.
    Its dial simply has hour indexes 13 to 24 printed on it, but in the standard 1 to 12 positions -a feature often used since the birth of Soviet watchmaking.

    Thanks for the information - I'm compiling a list of who and what to watch out for. :) I bought an Almaz from him with this one, knowing that the dial has at least been touched up with paint. I don't mind too much though - maybe I'll feel differently when it actually arrives.

    I think the original case didn't have springbars, for me it was one of the criteria but I suppose they could have been changed afterwards.
    I don't quite get the original system, is it possible to use two parts bracelets or was it ment just for the one part (continous) ones? Can the original rods be bent and reutilised after? These are my two examples:

    It's a very nice watch, wear it in good health!
